Everybody loves a pantomime - the crazy dame; the handsome prince; the beautiful princess - and the brilliant ensemble, singing and dancing right through the whole show.

If you are aged between seven and 18 and would like to be in a professional pantomime, rather than just in the audience watching the show, then keep reading, because The Big Pembrokeshire Pantomime is on the hunt for Pembrokeshire’s most talented youngsters to make up the junior ensemble for this year’s show - Dick Whittington.

And this year they will be performing alongside television legend Laila Morse - better known as Big Mo from BBC1’s Eastenders - and as the sister of Oscar-winner Gary Oldman… so this truly is a performance opportunity not to be missed.

The first Big Pembrokeshire Pantomime - Jack and Beanstalk - was a sell-out smash hit last year, thanks to its perfect combination of traditional family pantomime values - and its headline star, Love Island’s Jack Fincham.

This year The Big Pembrokeshire Pantomime is Dick Whittington - and Laila Morse will be joining the rest of the professional performers - and the junior ensemble - as the villainous Queen Rat to deliver a show to remember throughout December, including some special performances for schools.

If your child would like to be a part of the junior ensemble for The Big Pembrokeshire Pantomime then they will need to register at www.bigpembspanto.com/youth-auditions, where you’ll find all the information about the audition process - and other useful facts too.

Auditions will take place in Haverfordwest on September 9, with performances from December 12 to 31 at the Boulevard Theatre, Milford Haven.
